Re: Anyone able to compile on latest Ubuntu (13.X)?

From what I have experienced, without those symlinks I couldn't either finish the compiling or execute the game. Edit: ok, maybe bullet step can be skipped as I have tested it again and compiles equally. But those boost modifications are still necessary. I compile on Ubuntu (currently 13.04) and th...

Re: Anyone able to compile on latest Ubuntu (13.X)?

Allright, the steps I followed to compile freeorion in Ubuntu 13.04 are the following: 1- Get the source from SVN: svn co https://svn.code.sf.net/p/freeorion/code/trunk freeorion 2- Get dependencies to compile: sudo apt-get install build-essential subversion pkg-config libltdl3-dev cmake sudo apt-ge...

Re: Anyone able to compile on latest Ubuntu (13.X)?

Thank you very much. Whenever I have a break at my job I'll modify the wiki and add the instructions. Please don't. You came from a broken setup (several incompatible boost installations on one machine) so adding instructions to build on a broken setup won't help anybody. 'Fixing' it in the system ...

Re: Anyone able to compile on latest Ubuntu (13.X)?

OMG, can't believe I finally manage to compile and execute the game :D

Thank you very much. Whenever I have a break at my job I'll modify the wiki and add the instructions. However I feel it's been a nightmare and lot of work needs to be done about compiling freeorion on Linux.

I'm happy now :D

Re: Anyone able to compile on latest Ubuntu (13.X)?

I finally managed to compile by modifying the line 813 to TIME_UTC_ and applying the steps in http://www.freeorion.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=7603 (with some modifications for ubuntu) However one last step separates me from executing the game: [email protected]:~/Centropruebas/freeorion/FreeOrion$ ...

Re: Anyone able to compile on latest Ubuntu (13.X)?

Ok I managed to go through that part with the links provided by adrian_broher. However it fails to compile in another point: [ 42%] Building CXX object GG/src/CMakeFiles/GiGi.dir/GUI.cpp.o /home/rydra/Centropruebas/freeorion/FreeOrion/GG/src/GUI.cpp: In member function ‘virtual void GG::GUI::Wait(un...

Anyone able to compile on latest Ubuntu (13.X)?

Hi there, I've tried with different boost versions (1.47, 1.49, 1.53) in order to compile freeorion from source, yet it seems impossible on ubuntu. Cmake . goes all well, but when compiling, it yields to the following error: [ 13%] Building CXX object CMakeFiles/freeorioncommon.dir/Empire/ResourcePo...

How do developers have time to spare?

Hi there, I always wondered how the hell do open-source project coders have time to develop games like freeorion, battle for wesnoth or 0 A.D. and yet do an excellent job and provide high-quality games. I mean: I'm a pretty skillful computer engineer and developer (expert in Databases, development a...

What is infrastruture? What is its use?

Hi there, I'm new to this game and I've been playing a bit around. I really like the game. Simple, yet challenging to play and competitive. There are some concepts that are not very clear to me: One if infrastructure and the other one is supply. Whenever I build a building, it seems that infrastruct...
